Welcome to our butter cream filled window with a hint of red current. The centre Chinoiserie jacket is like no other! It dates from the late 60′s early 70′s and is encrusted with seed beads and prong set rhinestone dragons and phoenixes. It came to our attention that the dragon and phoenix couple is a Chinese symbol for good luck and harmonious marriage. Taking into consideration the red colour, we soon then realized that this originally was a wedding jacket. Fashion archaeologists ‘r’ us.
This week’s window has been curated around that bubblelicous cocktail dress in the centre. It dates from the 1960′s and was originally purchased from Saks Fifth Ave. Whomever designed it, was clearly inspired by Paul Poiret. From the cocoon shaped tulle over layer to the hobble hem, it harks back to the teens but with fresh go-go twist.

This week we have gilded our Judys in attempt to follow up last week’s blinged out window. Nothing makes us swoon more than hand beading. The difference between machine beading vs. hand, is like night and day. Take for instance the centre gown, if you zoom in you will see what we mean. The inconsistency of sequin placement is key to its beauty and quality. We are your Textile Geek Squad!
